The Arran Explorers Series is a collection of limited edition expressions of The Arran
Single Malt. Each edition celebrates the outstanding scenic beauty and diversity of
nature on the Isle of Arran. The picturesque village of Kildonan is situated on the
southern coast of the Isle of Arran, with the small pear-shaped island of Pladda, just
1km from the coastline. The privately-owned island is home to Pladda lighthouse which
was designed by Thomas Smith and is still active today. Established in 1790, the
lighthouse has a commanding position at the southern end of the island. The stunning
view of Pladda can be seen clearly from Kildonan which is home to Silver Sands, one
of the most beautiful beaches on Arran. Kildonan also boasts a castle which along
with Lochranza Castle and Brodick Castle were important fortresses guarding Arran’s
strategically important position in the approaches to the Firth of Clyde.
This view of Pladda island and Ailsa Craig from Kildonan is best taken in with a
dram of The Arran Single Malt in hand. This particular expression is 21 Years Old
and has been matured in Ex-Sherry Butts and Puncheons before being finished
in Ruby Port Casks sourced directly from Portugal. The resulting whisky perfectly
captures the breathtaking views of this part of the island. Take your senses
on an adventure around the Isle of Arran.
